I am straight up in love with this dog lol. Someone taught him well or he is just super smart. We walked through a flock of pigeons today and he didn't even react. Hasn't chewed anything he isn't supposed to, and VERY gentle with the kids. He is slowly warming up. It feels like he has been waiting for us to send him back, like he isn't letting himself get used to us. But slowly there are glimmers.

Healthy looking dog. I like his white toe socks!
He seems to be! He got an intake exam Wednesday when he was transferred to the new shelter, and some basic shots and care, as well as a neuter. I'll be taking him to my own vet soon to get him on the books and get preventatives started :) he's a little underweight, but we'll get him there :)

Right now the challenge is finding him an edible chew that lasts more than 2 minutes lol

He will fill out when he is sure of all the newness. I bet he will like hiking with the family.

Goughnut Maxx Black Ring Pro 50 - Our Strongest Toys — Goughnuts My mom's dog shredded an extreme Kong. These last her years until the rubber turns brittle & then they have a lifetime warranty. Just pay shipping once they hit the warning layer. :thumbsup: You can even pay to upgrade during an exchange if you want the next toughest or a pricier style; just pay the difference.

I think I’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but my dog does great with water buffalo horns. They don’t carry the same tooth breaking risk as antler and other super-hard chews but they still last plenty long. That’s a good looking and clearly SO sweet dog, I hope he integrates easily and happily into your family and routine :heart:

Mathias and him playing earlier. He's so gentle with the kids. Mathias loves throwing balls, and Luke loves catching them, but he's on reduced activity while he heals from surgery.

He crawled into bed next to me this morning and found himself wearing a baby on his head. He just stayed there lol

He's huge but a gentle giant. Maybe some mastiff or great dane or something big in him.
Looks alone he'll protect the family.
